A couple of years ago I had the great pleasure of hearing a very amusing song being sung on my bus about the way the meaning of certain English words has changed in relatively recent times. The only part I can remember was something like "when smack meant a clip round the ear". I don't know if the song was composed by the singer or not but would be very grateful if anyone has any leads in tracking down this song.

There is this... not at all what you're seeking, but fun.
